Hey all, I’m pretty new, so thanks in advance for any suggestions.
I’m creating patterns in inkscape, and I have the “geometric bounding box” option turned on.
I manually enter the width of my design (a watch strap, in this case) to 20 mm. However, after the glowforge cuts it, it measures about 21mm in width. Everything seems to be about 1 mm too wide.
I am using non-standard material (leather), and I am holding it down flat with magnets. The cuts seems to appear exactly where they are supposed to according to the camera, so the placement isn’t an issue. I’m also using a leather weight gauge to get as accurate a measurement of the thickness of the material as possible. So I’m pretty confident I have the thickness entered correctly. The only problem seems to be that my SVG file says 20 mm, and when I measure the cut piece, it is 21 mm.
I tested my SVG file with the proofgrade leather they sent, and I still saw the same issue. Still 21 mm instead of 20. So that seems like that would rule out it being any cutting settings entered wrongly.
Any suggestions? And according to the tech specs, it seems like there is supposed to be a .025 mm tolerance (which would be amazing).
Thanks so much!
